Nutrition info
Chicken: Always buy chicken from somewhere where you know how that chicken lived, and that it lived happily. Chickens are beautiful and sensitive creatures. Don't eat them often but when you do just make sure they weren't squashed into cages and the like!

So, chicken is massively high in Vitamin B3, or Niacin as it's also known. Niacin is key for energy production, it makes proteins, fats, and carbohydrates into usable energy. That energy helps you get your legs out into the countryside and breathe nice air and get your heart and lungs working!

Chicken also has all the B vitamins as well as a fantastic amount of protein. One chicken breast provides about 70% of your day's protein requirement (protein is pretty much over-egged though, it's rare as hen's teeth to be protein deficient in the western world)

This curry also contains turmeric, which is a potent anti-inflammatory.
